People walk their pets while watching their smartphone. Not fair. What about the dogs?
The dog is walking you. You are not looking where the two of
are going, nor are you interested in anything happening
you. You are emersed in your phone. Not fair for the dog.
So here comes the dog phone. A phone that interfaces with
dog through smells and sounds and even
you, the dog can be interested in its own version of virtual
ignoring the cats, birds and cars just like you would.
A cat phone finder could be used with this idea, when the
dog phone gets lost.

||"I say, I say, I say, my dog's got no phone !"
||"By drawing air over chemosensors in his nose that transmit signals to the olfactory bulbs in his brain, which translate the signals for his higher cognitive centres".
||"This is QI, what did you expect ?"
||The form factor of this device would be unusual, to enable a
"pee inputs, sniff outputs" model.
